Smoke Damage >> Meth Lab Cleanup

Methamphetamine, is unlike many drugs, meaning it is manufactured and is not cultivated or derived from a particular plant, such as the case with marijuana, heroin, and cocaine. Meth has to be manufactured from other chemicals and processes, most of which are highly flammable, explosive, and toxic. The Meth Lab Cleanup ingredients for making meth are readily available in many common products found in your home in many cold or allergy medicines and could be bought over the counter at local drug stores.

  1. These chemicals that are used in manufacturing meth are highly toxic and give off noxious smoke and odors. The Meth Lab Cleanup odor of the chemicals can range from sweet to smelly like cat urine, but they generally smell like ammonia, ether, or regular acetone. And because of this, most meth manufacturers will seal their windows and doors of the homemade lab where they make the deadly drug. This will only seal in the toxic and flammable vapors and smoke, however, which are highly reactive and explosive. As a result, many meth labs catch on fire or explode causing Meth Lab Cleanup.
  2.  The left over waste products and the lab equipment from making meth are generally dumped outside, posing a dangerous environmental threat, the chemicals are highly toxic and could enter the local water supplies through the ground water. These chemicals will also kill the grass and vegetation, causing burns or pits in our yards and fields. Meth labs are so toxic and dangerous that when they are discovered, only certified and licensed individuals wearing hazmat suits may legally clean them up, a process that costs thousands of dollars for each Meth Lab Cleanup.
  3. The meth lab itself will usually be in a house or trailer, not in a huge industrial facility. If a mobile home is used for a meth lab, it’s generally parked in some wooded or isolated vicinity to avoid detection. Their windows are usually covered over with duct tape or aluminum foil. There are usually excessive amounts of Meth Lab Cleanup trash that coincides with the manufacturer’s ingredients and will not put them out for disposal. They might attempt to bury or burn them on the property or put it out for trash pickup on a unsuspecting neighbor’s lawn. There are many signs of chemicals being dumped, along with bottles, tubing, propane tanks, or other manufacturing equipment that may surround the lab.
  4.  There could be toxic chemical burns or “pitting” in their yard where the grass has been killed by dumping the chemicals. The meth lab could have extensive security features such as “No Trespassing” signs, well-placed trees or bushes, privacy fences, security cameras and guard dogs. There could be strange smells or chemical Meth Lab Cleanup odors emanating from the meth lab. The occupants will probably be secretive, rude, or hostile and they may smoke outside, even in the winter time for fear of explosion. Large amounts of equipment to make the meth or garbage produced in making it might be transported in and out of the meth lab.
